Revry, the global queer streaming network will be premiering its first series on Instagram's IGTV video platform. The premiere episode introduces Savannah (star of the HBO doc Believer about Imagine Dragon’s Dan Reynold’s charity) and her viral moment of being shut out of the Mormon church.  The documentary deals with racial as well as sexual and gender issues. It's particularly interesting and is bound to generate a discussion since it deals with children and the challenges they go through in their adolescent years

Matt Alber and Jon Garcia have directed and produced this docu-series. Alber is a two-time Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter, filmmaker and LGBTQ+ youth educator based in Portland, OR, while Garcia is an accomplished musician and Emmy-nominated filmmaker currently living in Portland, OR. He has released feature films in varying genres in his short career as a filmmaker, including the cult trilogy The Falls, The Falls: Testament of Love, and The Falls: Covenant of Grace being the most well known.
